To protect mail addresses from spam bots, many experts use hacks like JavaScript code or text to image hack. Also CAPTCHA method is very used.

A CAPTCHA is a program that can tell whether its user is a human or a computer. You’ve probably seen them — colorful images with distorted text at the bottom of Web registration forms. CAPTCHAs are used by many websites to prevent abuse from "bots," or automated programs usually written to generate spam.

Happy Birthday Yahoo Mail!

Happy

Yahoo Mail turns 10 yesterday. With just 3 megabytes of storage back then, it’s hard to imagine what we started out with. There was no mobile integration then, limited ways in which to attach files like images, and fewer adopters of web-based services that weren’t directly tied to their ISPs. Yahoo’s put together a cute list of email milestones to help us remember how far we’ve come since 1997. Here it is:

* October 1997: Yahoo! Mail launches following our acquisition of Four 11, creators of RocketMail.
* December 1998: The movie You’ve Got Mail debuts.
* March 1999: CNN’s Ten Commandments of Email cites that Americans sent 2.1 billion emails daily (vs. 196 billion per day this year).
* December 1999: Yahoo! Mail launches Spamguard to detect spam and banish it to a separate folder.
* January 2000: Web mail survives Y2K.
* November 2001: Pope John Paul II is the first pontiff to send an email apology.
* March 2002: It’s reported internationally that email outpaces snail mail as the preferred method for residential communication.
* December 2003: Congress passes the CAN-SPAM Act of 2003 to regulate the sending of commercial email.
* July 2004: Yahoo! acquires Oddpost, bringing AJAX to Yahoo! and inspiring Yahoo! Mail’s most significant upgrade ever.
* June 2005: Broadway’s “Spamalot” wins Tony Award for Best Musical.
* March 2006: IDG study shows that Americans sent 11.8 billion photos via email in 2005, compared with 2.6 billion in 2000. By 2009, this number is projected to 25.7 billion images.
